We all value the opportunity to care for others with our actions, not just our words. We want to be that kind of church, and we want to help you to be that kind of person.
That’s why every week in November, we are choosing to make a real impact as we move into the next phase of being FOR our city. Here’s how you can be a part of it this weekend!
This Sunday our goal is to collect 4500 pounds of food for the Barrie Food Bank and the Orillia Salvation Army at both of our locations. We need everyone to bring as much non- perishable food as possible so we can really help our partners feed families in our city! Not sure what to bring? Here are just a few suggestions from our partners:
- Powdered Milk
- Peanut Butter & Jam
- Pasta & Pasta Sauce
- Canned Salmon, Meat & Stews
- Canned Fruits & Vegetables
- Condiments, Sugar & Rice
When you come this Sunday, why not consider inviting a friend to come with you too? They would probably love the opportunity to get to help great organizations like the Barrie Food Bank and the Orillia Salvation Army by bringing in non-perishable food items as well – plus we’d love to have them at Connexus!
So go ahead, send them a text or an email. Or, better yet, give them a call.
We’re looking forward to seeing you and your friend this weekend 🙂
Non-Commital — Part 2 — Non-Committal | Carey Nieuwhof
So it’s going well enough to make it permanent, sort of. You like her enough to stick around, but you’re afraid of commitment. So you move in together. Frankly, that’s what a lot of people do with Jesus. They don’t want to commit, but they don’t want to leave. The question is: where does that leave you?

Non-Committal — Part 1 — True Love | Carey Nieuwhof
Every relationship starts out with two people who like each other. Your emotions take over. You feel things you haven’t felt before. But then you ask yourself: is this just a phase? Will it go as quickly as it came? Can it be this fun for long? The same thing happens spiritually. What begins as a curiosity about Jesus always lands somewhere else. But what do you do with that?
